Giants "Most Difficult Threat" to Packers Perfect Season

| by Mark Berman Opposing Views

The Green Bay Packers head into the New Jersey Meadowlands on Sunday as they continue their quest for a perfect season. They will face a reeling Giants team that has lost its last three games, its playoff hopes on life support. So it should be a slam dunk for the Pack, right? Not necessarily.

As the Los Angeles Times points out, the Giants do not have a history of cowering in the face of perfection. Yes, they lost a close game to the Patriots on the final weekend of the 2007 season as New England completed its 16-0 run.

However several weeks later the Giants won the game that really counted -- the Super Bowl, denying the Patriots an historic 19-0 season.

That's why the Times writes:

Now, with the team losing its grip in the NFC East race, Manning, under-fire Coach Tom Coughlin and a desperate defense need a home victory badly as Green Bay (11-0) and MVP favorite Aaron Rogers arrive for a fierce late-afternoon game outside the Big Apple.

For Green Bay, the road game stands as the most difficult threat remaining to the second 16-0 regular season in NFL history.

The Giants are in bad shape. They trail the Cowboys by a game in East. If New York loses this week and Dallas beats the lowly Cardinals, the Cowboys can all-but wrap up the division if they beat the Giants the following week.

But Packers head coach Mike McCarthy doesn't sound too concerned about facing a desperate team.

"The toughest part of our schedule is over," McCarthy said.
